Scope and Content Slabbed ceiling of garderobe-chamber in north-west tower of Castle Sween, Knapdale, Argyll Sween Castle passed to the Stewart Earls of Menteith in 1262. In the Wars of Independence it was held by Sir John Menteith and John MacDougall of Lorn against the MacDonald Lords of the Isles and the original owners, the MacSweens. This is the slabbed roof of the garderobe-, or toilet-, chamber of the north-west tower, part of John Menteith's west wing of about 1300. The waste from the garderobe, or toilets, emptied at the base of the tower. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
